This photo was taken during the day on Tuesday from Innis Arden, looking out over the "Shoreline Sea" - which is in there somewhere. Ash fell around the area - Kenmore, north Seattle, west Shoreline, not sure where else.

The air is full of smoke coming over the Cascades from multiple eastern Washington fires, as well as from small fires in King County, and probably some coming from Oregon, depending on which way the wind is blowing.

The orange light was shining on my floor today and I thought I had spilled something, although I don't drink orange kool-aid.

Red Moon

Last night the moon was red. Lien Titus went outside at 1:30am (technically this morning) to get the photo.

Hard to think that the photos have not been altered, but the altering has been done to the atmosphere by the smoke and wood particles in the air.

According to the news, you should not wipe the ash from your car because it's abrasive.

You are also advised not to wash it off with just water because it undergoes a chemical change that damages the paint.

They say to use soap and water. Now I'm worried about the drains at Brown Bear.
